Correspondence Round-Up

FLG has been slacking off on the blogging lately, and the email has been backing up. So, he's gonna clear some of it out.

First, why did FLG get peaked lapels on the suits he had made in Delhi? If you'd asked FLG six months ago, then he'd have never said he'd gotten peaked lapels. They always remind him of double breasted suits, which he generally doesn't like. But somewhere along the line FLG noticed, even though he does not watch the show, that the flashy partner guy on the show Suits always has peaked lapels. In fact, FLG thinks it's the peaked lapels that make him look flashy. And then FLG noticed that Tom Ford, probably the only fashion designer FLG doesn't think dresses like a wacko, almost always wears peaked lapels no matter what type of coat he is wearing. So, FLG rethought the whole thing.

Second, a reader asks how to break into investment banking and how FLG became so knowledgeable about banking. Uh, FLG has no idea. Doesn't work in investment banking. Never has. Nor is he particularly knowledgeable about banking. He's just read a few books.

Third, another reader asks why FLG doesn't have a way to donate on his blog. Two reasons. Numero uno - FLG has a very generous sponsorship. Be sure to visit Sealand. Numero dos - while FLG certainly isn't rolling in dough right now and you might not have guessed that he has any class, it's just not becoming to pass the collection plate when he's been blogging about bespoke suits and Charvet for fuck's sake.

Fourth, FLG doesn't have a twitter account or handle or whatever. He hates Twitter. Yet, he might just have to give into the Dark Side eventually. He's still holding strong for now though.

2nd favorite line : "Numero dos - while FLG certainly isn't rolling in dough right now and you might not have guessed that he has any class, it's just not becoming to pass the collection plate when he's been blogging about bespoke suits and Charvet for fuck's sake."

For suits, peaked lapels have always been my favorite - especially in pin stripe. But then you'd expect that since the double-breasted is my favorite as well. I like men to look like admirals.

Ok, putting aside the "Uh, FLG has no idea and focusing on how you really do know so much about banking and economics -yes I'm buttering you up like an ear of corn- can you please give me a legitimate reason as to why the California Democrat Party is listed as a creditor of Solyndra?

From WaTimes:

"Among employees, vendors, investors and other creditors in the bankruptcy of government-backed solar-panel maker Solyndra LLC, one name stands out: the California Democratic Party.

"Why California Democrats would be creditor to a company that received more than a half-billion dollars in federal loans to build a solar-panel plant isn’t clear. Even party officials say they’re not sure..."

And don't forget this from TIME -2 weeks ago before:

"Republicans are already dancing on the grave of Solyndra, the solar panel manufacturer that received a $535 million federal loan in 2009 and collapsed on Wednesday. Here’s more music they can dance to: Sources tell me the Obama administration restructured the loan this winter, so taxpayers probably won’t even be the first creditors to get paid after Solyndra files for bankruptcy next week."

My suspicion is money laundering -stimulus funds were used to line Democrat party coffers through union dues and outright loans like Solyndra -but then I know nothing about banking or economics, I only know Democrats...
